HTTP Caching with Varnish


Conference: Drupal Mountain Camp, Davos, Switzerland
Title: HTTP Caching with Varnish
Links: slides

Get an introduction to caching "on the edge".

With the Varnish caching proxy, you can greatly increase the speed of websites and handle a lot more load. The basics are quite simple once you understand how the cache handling in HTTP works, so we will look into that first. We then go over cache invalidation, cache tagging strategies and have a look at Edge Side Includes (ESI).
